Tetronics International have 50 years’ experience globally delivering and developing their innovative Plasma Technology to address the growing number of waste management challenges, including those specific to the petrochemical sector, such as the Treatment Of Hazardous And Chemically Difficult Wastes and the Recovery Of Precious Metals From Spent Industrial Catalysts. Tetronics  focuses on providing an economically stable cost base and attractive revenue streams to ensure maximised financial returns. Examples of petrochemical waste include:
1.     Oily Sludges generated during oil tank cleaning operations
2.     Spent Zeolite Catalysts used in Residue Fluidised Catalytic Cracking (RFCC)
3.     Hazardous Waste Streams Contaminated with Heavy Metals and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs; e.g. PCBs and HCBs)

Petrochemical/Hazardous Waste Treatment

Traditionally, the petrochemical sector has relied on High Temperature Incineration (HTI) and landfill in order to deal with their hazardous wastes. However, tightening regulation, increasing landfill costs and social responsibilities are driving companies to look at more environmentally friendly methods of treatment for these very challenging wastes.

Tetronics is able to overcome these challenges by offering a commercial advantage over existing waste management options while at the same time reducing landfill liabilities and conserving natural resources. The technology treats these contaminated waste materials so that the pollutant is destroyed and the bulk mass material is recovered as a safe, inert product, called Plasmarok®, able to be re-used in a range of building applications, so completing the sustainability cycle.

PM Recovery from Spent Industrial Catalysts
Tetronics’ technology has been used for decades to recover Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium from precious metal bearing waste materials with class leading recovery rates. The principal advantages of Tetronics patented plasma technology are that it couples the highest technical recovery/operational flexibility with the lowest environmental impacts and cost base.
Catalyst Wastes contain Precious Metals and specifically the Platinum Group Metals (PGMs) that are valuable as a result of their low natural abundance, unique properties and the complex processes that are required for their extraction and refining from primary sources.

The process chemistry in Tetronics’ plasma waste recovery technology is designed to smelt and preferentially separate the precious metals from the less valuable catalyst material, which is vitrified into an approved, inert, safe, reusable product called Plasmarok® in a single processing step. The technology will also destroy any hazardous organic material, such as dioxins etc. that may be contained within the waste material.

Other Applications
Our other applications include, but are not limited to: treatment of Organics, Fly Ash & Air Pollution Control residue (APCr), Spent Potliner, Asbestos and Radioactive Wastes as well as the recovery of Precious Metals (PMs) from Electronics Waste and recovery of Base Metals from Steel Plant Waste.
